Baltimore Orioles vs Minnesota Twins Match Preview and Free Picks
A pair of former teammates with the Tampa Bay Rays who are struggling mightily this season will square off on the mound when the Minnesota Twins go for a sweep of a four-game series against the visiting Baltimore Orioles on Sunday afternoon. Minnesota's Jake Odorizzi seeks his first win in two months when he opposes Baltimore's Alex Cobb.
After a 1-8 road trip that ended with six straight losses, all the Twins needed was a return home -- and a visit from the worst team in the majors -- to snap out of their rut and post their first three-game win streak in over a month. Bobby Wilson had two hits and three RBIs, including a tiebreaking two-run double, and Max Kepler homered for the second straight day as Minnesota erased an early 3-0 deficit in Saturday's 5-4 victory.
Baltimore, which dropped to 40 games below .500 with its fifth consecutive loss and 12th defeat in 13 games, will be hoping to avert a four-game sweep in the Twin Cities for the first time in franchise history. Jonathan Schoop has hit safely in five straight games overall for the Orioles and is 11-for-32 with a homer and four doubles against Odorizzi.
